With 8.46 million do we go shopping or sign Hardy?

What happened with Woodson? Maybe clearing up the space might have been for him?

We're not paying a 37 year old player 3 million dollars a year.

I don't understand why everyone automatically assumes that Hardy would want to sign an extension. If I am him, and see the DL we just brought in, I play out my rookie contract, beast out in my contract year and then see who out there pays the most.

 

I wouldn't count on him signing a long term deal anytime soon..

 

And then there is this;

 

We have to ensure we have the $$$$ to sign Newton to a new deal as well.... I think Gman is going to take his cap space into next season and see what happens. I don't see him doing big contracts like hurney did any time soon without them being warranted. Yes, Hardy is bad ass, but I think it would be a little pre-mature.

 

Just my .02

Really need someone to confirm if we've signed our drafted players yet -- and if not, wouldn't this just soak up ~$5.5Mil of this "new" $8.4Mil cap space?

 

No brainer if this is the case: let the $3Mil roll over for the dead money left by Gross and Anderson ($8.4Mil) in 2014

This does not include the new draft picks we have to sign nor does it include the June 1st money we get for cutting Anderson. Those two will just about cancel each other out.

Also, we are fine for our cap next year. Look up our cap hit on spotrac. We were way over in the beginning of the year but all of these restructures and cuts have helped future years immensely. We will easily have enough to sign hardy to an extension.

Next years $112 already (Spotrac) - 2.5 rollover (8 current cap - 5.5 2013 draftees) + 6.3 in 2nd year salaries for 13' draftees + 5.5 2014 draftees + 8.7 dead money (naka, Anderson, gross) = (109.5 + 20.5) = $130M 2014 cap number without having LaFell and Hardy on the books.

Just not seeing how we can afford to shop right now

Which is why he wont. Bc its Greg Hardy.

Gettleman didnt draft Hardy. Why would he already give money to a player he has yet seen play a down for him since being the GM?

 

Gettleman was there at NY and saw first hand with how Jerry Reese played the Osi situation. Gettleman will let this situation play itself out.

 

 

so what you're saying is Gettleman is a little bitch and also doesn't watch game film..  classic chuck.

Do we lose money for Wharton being a June 1st cut last year?

I have read and listened to the debate on this topic and have come to the conclusion that I am sooooo glad we have a GM to make this decision instead of a bunch of guys acting like silly girls.

 

Having said all that I could see at least one more FA move to address either the OL or secondary.
